    I am tying to download mavericks but when i click on the "Free upgrade" and then "install app" a loading wheal in the upper left hand corner of the app store window will spin for a second and then stop. And thats it! Nothing is downloading. I even checked activity monitor and the internet activity is idle. is anyone else having this problem? does anyone know how to get this working?

    My specs: iMac 21.5" 3.06ghz core 2 duo (late 2009) running mac os x 10.7.5 build 11G63

    May have to wait several hours. Servers need to settle down. I was quick enough to get it going on one of my iMac's and after that no luck on others. I will just have to wait as well.

    Good to know I'm not the only one having a problem. I'll try again in a few hours.

    What's Mavericks and does it work on Mountain Lion?

    And why is it free? Sounds suspicious!

    Mavericks is basically the new Mountain Lion

    Mine's downloading now, no issues... so far

    Good to know i'm not the only one who's having problems! I'll keep trying, but I guess the servers are swamped right now.

    So I think I figured out what is going on. I was having the same issue where whenever I clicked the download and saw the loading wheel on the upper left hand corner for a couple seconds and then nothing. I looked at my launchpad app and saw a download bar that wasn't loading anything. If you open up launchpad, you should find a Mavericks icon show up, and underneath it, you'll see "Paused." Just click it, and hopefully it'll start downloading.

    Hope that helped! That's what worked for me.
